Graduation cap reading "(Hello real world);"

Dean Laura Haas invites graduating College of Information and Computer Sciences (CICS) students and their friends and families to virtual celebrations for the Class of 2020 on Friday, May 8 at 8 am. At that time, the college will be releasing two sets of special graduation content—one for graduating bachelor’s students and one for graduating master’s and doctoral students—featuring messages from the dean and congratulations from the CICS community, plus a few surprises. 

The content will be available at the links below at 8 am on graduation day, Friday, May 8:

These virtual celebrations will not replace the traditional campus-wide ceremonies, which will be rescheduled for an appropriate date after restrictions on large gatherings are lifted. 

Graduating students or families can buy a CICS T-shirt with the CICS signature binary tree at the University Store, along with other university memorabilia. The store is offering a 15% discount on all UMass Amherst gear using the code CLASSOF2020.
